I also noticed that there will be a Gay and Straight Alliance (http://www.marquette.edu/um/pastoral/glb/) ?rose sale? on Valentine?s Day at Marquette University.  Does that sale ?comport? with the university?s mission of promoting a ?Catholic identity??

You have, according to my research, at least two gay organizations on campus. Both organizations seem to enjoy ?unfettered pursuit of truth? at Marquette. They are allowed freedom of speech on your website and freedom of association on your campus. Although, as a private school, you are not bound by the First Amendment, you seem to grant these organizations certain rights voluntarily, in the name of academic freedom.

So, how are we to resolve the university?s position that, a) pro-abortion speech is permissible, b) pro-gay speech is permissible, and c) pro-war speech is impermissible?

The answer is simple: Marquette University is not committed to serving God or the Catholic Church. It is committed to advancing the policies of the Democratic Party.

Clearly, the true purpose of your university has not been revealed to potential students at Marquette. Instead, they have been fraudulently induced into paying $22,950 per year in tuition under the false promise of, among other things, academic freedom.

Accordingly, I hereby demand a tuition refund in the amount of $23 million. This refund should be distributed to the 1000 members of the College Republicans at Marquette immediately. Since you are the 124,873rd person to receive this letter from me, it is likely that others will be calling upon you (at 414.288.1412) to do the same.

If, for some reason, you refuse to refund the full amount in 30 days, I will ask the CRs to stop engaging in right wing or, as you say, ?provocative? tactics, such as the organization of an Adopt a Sniper benefit. Instead, I will urge them to engage in more liberal tactics. Specifically, I will urge the 1000 members to overtake your office with a sit-in, just like the radical leftists did on campuses in the 1960s.

Finally, Dean McCarthy, I apologize if the title of my letter suggests a comparison between you and Senator Joe McCarthy. Such a comparison is unfair. Senator McCarthy?s patriotism and love of country were beyond question.

Mike S. Adams? (www.DrAdams.org) speech at the Wisconsin Law School has been moved to Monday, February 28th, at 7 pm, in room 3250 at the Law School. The talk will be open to the public.
